How to Live Like a Local in: Chiswick

There’s more to Chiswick than the High Road but it’s a good place to start. Live as the locals do and pop into Artisan for your morning coffee, No 197 Chiswick Fire Station for lunch and pick up a 20 inch pizza from Pizza Street for your dinner. That’s before we even start on riverside drinking spots, farmers markets and gin. Here are 11 reasons that make Chiswick well worth the trip west.

Source and Select Your Own Menu at Sanderson

During a stay at a five star hotel it goes without saying that you can get pretty much anything you want/need/desire with a single call to reception. Fresh towels? Absolutely. Breakfast in bed? Easy. But as your requests appear in your room you barely give a thought to the people behind the scenes who have made it happen. We’re not talking about the staff who wash the towels, we’re talking about the farmer who grew the spinach in your green juice and the fisherman who caught your salmon. Sanderson have a new Origins Package which gives producers and farmers the […]

Even more so do the Italians also know how to make the most of their leisure time. As Londoners, we far too often are constantly rushing from one place to the next that even when we do have a spare moment to relax we find it borderline impossible. However, Ham Yard Hotel is gathering inspiration from our Italian friends and giving even us city slickers the opportunity to enjoy some much overdo R&R.  Ham Yard […]

Grotesque Gastronomy: Bompas & Parr Take on The Twits

In honour what would be the 100th birthday year of everyone’s favourite childhood author (Roald Dahl of course), we’ve seen afternoon teas, themed cocktails and exhibitions of much-loved Quentin Blake illustrations. Tempting Charlie and the Chocolate Factory desserts, fruity James and the Giant Peach cocktails and… dinner at the Twits? Bear with us, it may sound much less appetising than the alternative celebrations but this is a dinner experience like no other, all set to be ‘the worst dinner party in the world’. A theatrical take on dinner at Mr and Mrs Twit’s, theatre company Les Enfants Terribles and creators of the Olivier […]
